Abstract: Background: This study is for examining the association between green logistics, energy demand, renewable energy consumptions, environmental performance and sustainable economic development in a panel of nineteen developed economies around the globe over the period from 2008 - 2017. In addition, the article expands domain of green logistics from firm level to country level and also connects national scale economic indicators with green logistical performance.
